References

  • The item's name is a combination of the Spanish dollar, commonly known as a "piece of eight", and the English after-dinner mint After Eight.
  • Exploding in a shower of gore after eating such a "wafer-thin" mint comes from the Mr Creosote sketch in Monty Python's The Meaning of Life.
    • The specific term "wafer-thinness" is likely a secondary reference, to the lyrics of the MC Frontalot song "Romantic Cheapskate v 2.0," itself referencing the Monty Python sketch.
